This was my favorite part of Anthem.
Great to find it unedited.

not from 1/22/68
(This is an edit of my old review.)
Charlie Miller has noted on deadlists: "The songs listed for 3/31/68 are actually from 1/22/68."
Miller put most of this fragment at the end of his 1/22/68 file here, based on Latvala's notes that it was the same performance. It seemed to fit so well - one Caution cuts off, another cuts in - but it was a mistake. Miller has since posted his own, better copy of 3/31/68.

Robert Hunter ?
I think Robert Hunter is singing with them on the last song...Bid You Good Night.

Last Anthem of the Sun gig
After recording their first album in 4 days, the Dead spend six months in the studio and in performances recording material for Anthem of the Sun. March 31 was the last show of that effort. It was a great six months, and produced some great shows, and a cutting-edge album.
This the end of a show of the end of Anthem project. It must have been a good one. I agree with the other reviewers, a very good stretch of feedback. Not a great Good Night, though.
I’ve listened to all of the Anthem of the Sun shows here at Archive, and these are the best:
10/22/67*, 1/17/68, 1/20/68*, 2/2/68, 2/3/68, 2/14/68*, 3/16/68, 3/26/68.
I would include in this list Dick’s Picks Vol. 22, 2/23/68* and 2/24/68*
